Largent becomes U.S. Marine

    U.S. Marine Corps Pvt. Jaron M. Largent, son of Marianne and Harry Largent of Baltimore, earned the title of United States Marine after graduating from recruit training at  Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S.C.
    For 13 weeks, Largent stayed committed during some of the world’s most demanding entry-level military training in order to be transformed from civilian to Marine instilled with pride, discipline and the core values of honor, courage and commitment.
    Training subjects included close-order drill, marksmanship with an M-16A4 rifle, physical fitness, martial arts, swimming, military history, customs and courtesies.
    One week prior to graduation, Largent endured “The Crucible,” a 54-hour final test of recruits’ minds and bodies.     
    Upon completion, recruits are presented the Marine Corps emblem and called Marines for the first time.
    Largent is a 2006 graduate of Sparrows Point High School and earned 18 credits from CCBC Dundalk.
